environment. i have had businesses show me two plans. taxes went up which they did, they were going to cut back on 25 people. this was 150-person firm. it's common sense, we don't have to guess was at what is happening. it's not republican obstruction. the fact is, it's the policies that the president has put in place is making it more and more difficult for businesses to succeed. >> it's disheartening because people are parking money, not making investment decisions but it's because they feel overwhelmed by policies they don't understand. we were trying to figure out about the healthcare. 'if weir struggling to figure out what that is, that is not a good use of your time. instead of making things simple and effective and efficient and fair, we're getting all these thousands of regulations that are confusing and stagnant and just enrage go people. >> businesses have to have a fleet of lawyers to figure out obamacare. they are afraid of being penalizes. they wanted to keep the employee count down. as a businessman, it's pretty clear what is happening here and it's just bad economic policy.
